Personally I prefer to know where everything is, which is why I prefer to know what's in my Boot and it not be a huge mess that we're not supposed to look in. A package manager is a nice idea, I can see it opening the way up to use of shared libraries more, which are in beta AFAIK. However, as a power user, I think I'll always try to avoid a package manager just because of how I like to work. Flexible paths seems a nice idea - since I keep my apps and data separate anyway I won't ave problems there if I use it.
